Q11. Would you like to share a story about House Sparrows from this time period?Hi , I am staying in Abroad (Abudhabi, UAE) from last 3 years & I was surprised to see a very large number of sparrows in the locality that I live. This shows that Cell phone towers / radiation / urbanisation is not the cause for the less number in Hyderabad. Though the temperature is too hot with high humidity levels and less or no rains, yet the number of sparrows is too high. Was very happy to see my childhood friends in such a big number.Wondering how come and also want to know the reason for the happy go lucky kind birds. Cheers !!! Dr Venkat
